So for context, I (29f) have been a store manager for a famous retail food franchise for 3 months. I started under one owner who was terrible, so after 7 weeks of literally not being allowed to do my job.
I applied for another outlet and got hired. While I’m a lot happier here, I’ve gotten a lot more irritable toward my boss.
He is a horrible micromanager. He shows up whenever he wants and then takes over my office space when I need to utilize it. He has accused me of not knowing what I’m doing (For context, I had done the previous product Launch in April and was just fine.
When the next set of products came along, I had already delegated the tasks and he flat up accused me of not knowing what I was doing for unknown reasons).
He lectures me over the dumbest crap. He hires people behind my back when I don’t need any more people, especially since I walked into an overstaffed mess. He never lets me have the work/life balance I was promised.
I was supposed to have a 30-day review with him and his boss that comes with a raise and benefits starting on June 18th and that hasn’t happened yet. He says incredibly inappropriate things to my assistant who is pregnant.
When he does come in to help, he focuses on mopping the floors instead of helping, and 9 times out of 10, he’s usually just getting in the way. He also ordered product we don’t need in something called a “Bill to, Ship to” for yesterday at another store. He spies on my current order for Thursday and had said that I need to order extra of this and that when I don’t. He also has a bad habit of just taking product for other stores without asking OR allowing stores to come and borrow without asking if I have enough product.
I know it’s a long list, but all of this is causing me to become very stressed out because I feel like I’m walking on egg shells. My previous job put me in a financial hell due to an ableist boss and I’m trying to catch up, but I can’t without the raise and without benefits, my health can’t be taken care of as well as it used to be. With all of this said, would I be ok if I threw him under the bus to our big boss?
